Publication containing ten urban reports which show how bicycle policy has contributed to increased bicycle use in the long term. Ten unique yet similar stories which can serve as an example of how high bicycle use can be achieved in the long term.
The ten stories are mainly specifications of the general line of ‘long term’ and ‘integral’. Each city has a different story, with different emphases based on the local situation. The differences and similarities between the ten stories are analysed further at the end of this publication.
Bicycle use continues to grow in Groningen. Last year the forty main bicycle routes in the town were used by 230,000 cyclists. That is an almost seven per cent increase compared to 2008. And an increase of over fifteen per cent compared to the year before that.
